AMS Member Profile ~ Mike Rerick ~

Stacks Image 177
I am a software engineer with over twenty years of developing a wide variety of software, including five years with web based applications.

I became interested in marquetry several years ago after seeing a display at the Oregon state fair. I looked at the pictures and talked to one of the members manning the booth, got contact information from him and several months later attended a local chapter meeting. I have been a member ever since.

I have only done one marquetry piece so far, a small rose bud, which one of our local members uses as a training piece in his beginning lesson. However, I enjoyed making the picture and intend to create more in the future.

When the previous webmaster decided to step down, I volunteered to take over his position. Mark Bendickson and I developed and maintained the AMS website until the end of 2007.
